Re: First Hydrofoil tips and advice

Also, I keep hearing different opinions on straps vs strapless. Would it be too much of a challenge to learn strapless straight from day one? I did from day one, and never tried with straps ever. After two years I can say this: Yes, it is possible. But with at least one strap up front your progress...

Re: Flysurfer sonic Race

The Sonic Race is not the 3rd generation of the Sonic! It is a separate product line, next to the Sonic2. The R1 V3 has been taken of the market recently by Ozone itself, so V2 is still it. An official released Diablo3 is not there yet. And still F-one sells the cheaper (less expensive fits better)...

Why would you want that?
Because Benoit will never be able to distribute this kite in large quantities. He only makes kites on request.

I would love to test one for example. The same for the concept'air Pulsion! Not possible unless i meet up with one of the French kite owners.

Re: Flysurfer sonic Race

I love my Sonic2 11.4, but this sounds like the holy grail of Flysurfer, while the Sonic2 is already a very good racekite!

Looking at the pricetag and that of it's competitors (R1V2, Diablo2...) it looks like a very special niche product for serious racers only

Re: Concept Air Smart Wave 6.5 & 4.5 & 3

Very interesting developments!
I wish one of the big brands will pick up this niche market very soon!
Liquid Force knew where to find Benoit when they needed a high performance foilkite in their program. I wish they would contact him for this wave foilkite concept!

Re: Wow! e-Foil, ultimate low wind...How does it work?

I am on the cell-phone at the moment.
But look at the old laser dinghy being retrofitted with a hydrofoil kit.
Look at the olympic nacra catamaran class being fitted with foils. Electric personal watercraft electric with hydrofoils.
Basically find any boating site and you will find the examples!

Re: Wow!!! e-Foil , ultimate low wind.. How does it work?

As a kid I also rode hydrofoil bus boat in a river, and now I noticed the anomaly,... a "better" technology that did not survive? How come the hydrofoil vessels had shortcoming ? Weren't they more fuel effective and faster? Those Russian hydrofoil equipped "busses" are made by the same method as no...

Re: Moses Fluente whistling

My Zeeko carbon 2016 also whistles at speed, also upwind. As long as you make good speed, which is easier going downwind of course
